Unable to meet deductibles and copayments
Feb 14, 2011

I have CIGNA at work. It was the better of 2 choices for healthcare insurance. I take Truvada, Noirvir, and others. When I went to pick up my med at the drugstore, I was told I have to pay $720 toward my deductible. I cannot afford that. Do I have any alternatives? I live in Georgia.

Response from Ms. Franzoi

I am not sure of what options might be available. Sometimes Pharmaceutical companies will provide some assistance so you might check that out. also, you might qualify for assistance under the Ryan White Act.
